Thank you for visiting our website Diervriendelijk NL. Een DIER Een VRIEND is a Dutch non-profit organisation for animal rights and the rights of animal-friendly consumers. Our name translates into ‘An Animal (A) Friend’, and our motto is ‘Because animals have rights!’
Because we are a national organisation, our website is in Dutch only. However, as we believe in working as effectively as possible for the animals, we are a member of several national as well as international partnerships. Below, you will find website links in English and other languages to befriended organisations.
Een DIER Een VRIEND is a proud member and president of Cruelty Free Europe, the successor of the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments, and the worldwide Open Wing Alliance. Our transatlantic partner in the Leaping Bunny program for cruelty-free products is the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics. Internationally we also a.o. work together with Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project and Jakarta Animal Aid Network.
For more information about an animal-friendly lifestyle, watch this informative video by Joey Carbstrong and ‘Earthling Ed’, then try a vegan diet for a while. Nowadays it’s gotten real easy to find plant-based products even in regular supermarkets. You can even get help from a mentor at Challenge22 if you need it.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need help finding something or someone. If you’re a member of the media and want to get in touch, please visit our Media Center to contact us.
For all animals,
Een DIER Een VRIEND
